Launch of NATURE Lab Featuring “Ecological Interventions” with Brandon Ballengée and Oliver Kellhammer, and Presentation by Oron Catts
March 19, 2014 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm EDT
Join Oron Catts (who will be presenting his BioArt work later in the evening) and Kathy High in an informal walk-through of “Ecological Interventions” and celebrate the launching of NATURE Lab! Internationally-renowned environmental artists Brandon Ballengée (U.S.) and Oliver Kellhammer (Canada) care deeply about our ecology and our future. Their projects explore how we as citizens of the world can change our impact on the environment. The exhibition shows photographic evidence of their experiments and explorations. Ballengée works with aquatic systems, rivers, streams, swamps, to look at the biodiversity of our waterways and how to repair and deal with pollutants. Kellhammer is a permaculturalist who has worked over years to plant the earth with remediating vegetation. Kellhammer and Ballengée have a mission to help us all learn how to interact with our environments, and look for signs of damage to aid in the repair that is necessary. Both artists are determined to teach citizens to become scientific investigators able to change their local ecosystems. Exhibition curated by Kathy High.
